Prevention

Annihilation of chancroid would be greatly helped by the development of an effective vaccine, but none has so far been developed.[6] Yet eradication of chancroid should be feasible, for one because the treatment of chancroid is cheap and effective.[21] H. ducreyi has a short duration of infectivity and can effectively be destroyed using soap and water. To survive in a population, H. ducreyi needs sexual networks with frequent contacts and high rates of partner exchange. Institution of preventive measures such as controlled prostitution and education to improve condom use together with regular health checks of sex workers and presumptive antibiotic treatment should all contribute to reduction of chancroid.[21] A concern regarding presumptive treatment is the possible development of antibiotic resistance and the false sense of security among those treated that could impede preventive behavior. This stresses the need for education. Targeting of uncircum-cised men who are at higher risk of acquiring and transmitting chancroid may also be very effective.[24]
